Frontline Technology: LCD In-Cell Touch
Imagine being able to touch the surface of any display with your finger or a stylus and have the location of your touch instantly identified down to the exact pixels. Imagine this happening with no cover glass or special coatings or any other obstruction in front of the display, and with minimal change inside the display. That's the promise of in-cell touch. The problem is that the promise remains mostly out of reach. This article explores that promise and its current status in detail.

Enabling Technology: Beneath the Surface
Surface computing is about integrating the physical world and the virtual world through the use of vision-based touch. While Microsoft's Surface product is the best-known implementation of surface computing, it is far from the only one. Expanding university research on touch continues to make use of vision-based touch as a foundation, which in turn will help move surface computing toward full commercialization.
